Winston-Salem's First Wine on Tap System!
Now with Seventeen Wines on Tap

The perfect way to dispense wines by the glass is now at our Vin205 Wine Bar with our Barrel Tap Selections. The newest thing around, great wines shipped to us in barrel kegs and run by a special tap system.   The keg system insures that the wine is always fresh and ready to serve and is a much "greener" way to package wine (no bottles, lighter to ship, refillable keg, etc.).
